Being Carly, MDW

Maybe I should have picked out the suits and dresses…

(Conversation that occurred last night at dinner)

Carly: Nate, I haven’t figured out what you’re going to do in the wedding.
Nate: What do you mean?
Carly: I haven’t figured out if you’re going to hand out programs or seat people or what, since you won’t be standing with the wedding party.
Nate: Why am I not standing with the wedding party?
Carly: Because you’re not wearing a black suit. You’re wearing a grey suit.
Janean: You’re supposed to wear a black suit.
Nate: So what? You said that was fine.
Carly: I said that was fine if that’s what you wanted to wear, but you couldn’t stand next to the ten people in black suits if you did that.
Janean: You should get a black suit.
Nate: Nobody will even notice.
Carly: Everyone will notice. The people attending the wedding know the difference between grey and black.
Janean: We’re all going to be in black. I have a black dress.
Carly: See? Black.
Janean: Ooooh, you could totally get a black suit at Goodwill or some other thrift store.
Carly: Wow, it’s like Janean was on my side and then she just decided to harpoon my wedding. Please do not wear a black suit from Goodwill.
Nate: I offered to wear a black suit.
Janean: No, you offered to wear a tuxedo.
Nate: A tuxedo is practically a black suit.
Janean: No, it’s not.
Carly: It’s really not, dude.
Janean: The only person in a tux is the person getting married.
Carly: Right. Kyle is in a tux.
Nate: But it’s the same thing.
Carly: No. No. See, it’s like how Janean is wearing a dress and I’m wearing a dress, but she’s wearing a bridesmaid dress and I’m wearing a wedding gown. Both dresses, but wildly different things.
Janean: Oh yeah, you don’t really want me to send you a picture of the dress I’m wearing, do you?
Carly: Yes, that’s why I asked everyone to send me pictures of what they were wearing.
Janean: Oh, I didn’t think you meant me, though.
Carly: Every person I sent that letter to doesn’t think I meant them. We have an entire wedding party of people who think that they have a special exception.
Nate: I sent you a picture.
Carly: Yes, of you in a grey suit. I asked for you in a black suit. It’s like you almost got it, but you really kind of didn’t at all.
Nate: Oh. So wait, you want me to wear a black suit at the wedding?
Carly: Yes.
Janean: From Goodwill.
Carly: No.

    And this is reason #342 I’m not having a wedding party. It’s hard enough managing our families– I can’t imagine trying to wrangle all of our friends scattered across the country too!

    Haha…that’s really funny :)…can he rent a black suit? At our wedding, we wanted suits, not tuxes…and they were all rented. We were going to let them wear their own, but then we decided we wanted brown suits. Have you looked into a rental for him (like you don’t have enough other stuff to do…haha)?

    He can totally rent a black suit!! My man was in a wedding party and they all wore black suits that were rented.
    You got to sort of love that he didn’t think anyone would notice the lone person in the gray suit!!

    I told him that, but he’s probably going to buy one. He’s in the legal field too and it’s not like he couldn’t use a black suit. The three of us are supposed to take a shopping trip to get one in the next four weeks. That will probably be a post in itself…

    Hahaha!! Funny post. Before I saw your comment above, I was going to say – he should just buy one. Every guy can use a black suit. Check when Macys Men’s Store is having their big suit sale. They have great suits (but they get pricey…so sale time is best!)

    When all else fails violence is a good option. Have you considered beating some sense into your peeps? Be forewarned though that people will then think you are a Bridezilla. People can be so overly-sensitive.

    That’s a funny post … I especially enjoy everyone thinking they had a special exemption!
